Do you want love, or do you want romance? Oh, you want both? I'm sorry but I can't do that. Why not, you ask? because love and romance are two different things. One is everlasting and the other is an intensified fling. One is where two people fight together the other is where two have fun then grow apart one is where a bond is forged and cemented the other is what makes both people demented one is where a connection is made between hearts the other is where feelings change like the weather one is where both stay until things get better one is where two leave once things hit the rocks Do you want love, or do you want romance? you say romance leads to love? I beg to differ. I've been in romance and I've experienced love and I like love much better. Sure, the fiery nature of romance, the hot sex, the intense passion, the incredible highs and exhilarating emotional fulfilment is something one will die chasing. however. . . What I want is love, what I want is stability what I want is above romance and its inherent fragility what I want is a connection that has the ability to withstand the banality and keep the other person standing with me. What I want is everlasting, what I want is something to take to the grave so that when I look back as the grim reaper comes for my soul I will say 'if I could, I would relive my life just the same'. So, do you want love or do you want romance? one I can do and one I can't. the flames of romance have burned out within me and the flowers of love have begun to blossom luminously.
